The Tissue Box Gets an Animal-Inspired Redesign

    The Tissue Box Gets an Animal-Inspired Redesign
    Etsy store shopSparklyPony, based in California, is offering a range of animal-shaped tissue boxes that use the actual tissues to add to their design. The handmade holders currently available are a whale, an elephant, a pony, and a rabbit.
    animal tissue boxThe whale releases tissues from its blowhole and the elephant dispenses them from its trunk, looking like a stream of water squirting out. The tissues also embellish the pony and rabbit holders, as they appear to be white tails on these animals.
    Each of the animal tissue holders are completely hand cut, hand sanded, hand painted, and hand constructed. The “functional and unique works of art” require several hours to make. They are made from wood purchased at a local lumber store, which is supplied by sustainable forestry companies in the U.S.
    animal tissue boxEach item is given two coats of glossy latex paint to ensure its rich lasting color. The faces and extra details of the animals are made with a custom cut thin decal. Edges are individually sanded and distressed to achieve a vintage look and feel. The tissue holders can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or antibacterial wipe. Each one is suitable for storing standard sized tissue boxes, such as Kleenex and Puffs, which fit inside snugly and are held in place.
    The Etsy store owner offers the cute animal-shaped tissue holders for $39.99 in a variety of colors: seafoam, cyan, orange, yellow, white, surf blue, pink, green, and kelly green. Each item is stamped, dated, signed, and numbered with its order of purchase.
    animal tissue boxThese tissue holders do an impressive job of enhancing their design using the product they are storing. They are more adorable than the standard tissue boxes and different animals could be placed in rooms around the house. A blue whale tissue holder would look right at home in a sea-themed bathroom, while a brightly colored pony would be great in a child’s bedroom.

    Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

    For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

    So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

    The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

    Day 2- Ranau

    So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

    I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

    After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …

    Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

    During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

    I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

    The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

    HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
